Coming Soon! Outcomes of the Gender Equality On & Off the Stage Project

FIA, together with Employer Federation Pearle* Live Performance Europe, were the lead partners in our recent European Project: ‘Gender Equality on and off the Stage:  A Mapping Project of the European Live Performance Sector’. The project ran from February 2020 until January 2022. It was a joint undertaking of the European social partners in the live performance sector, also including our sister Federations FIM (International Federation of Musicians) and UNI-MEI (media and entertainment division of UNI Global Union). The project was financed by the European Commission. The main aim of the project was to map the situation with regard to gender equality in the Live Performance sector across the EU and create an overview in order to identify and highlight good practice examples.

The project work drew to a close at the end of January and what now remains is to launch the outcomes of the project via a dedicated website. Key among these outcomes is a collection of good practice examples pertaining to gender equality in the Live Performance sector. Many are social partner initiatives, or projects which involve them, presenting a useful addition to other existing resources in the cultural sector. This collection of good practice presents the most relevant and recent practices in a standardised format. They span a broad range of examples including legal and policy measures, initiatives and agreements of social partners, actions by civil society and artistic movements, all dedicated to promoting gender equality in the live performance sector. Elsewhere on the website you will find a brief explanation of the general context of the project and the methodology used; a wealth of recordings and resources arising from the four online Gender Equality Thursday webinars held in the course of the project; as well as some overall reflections and a list of useful resources regarding Gender Equality in the Live Performance sector.

The website will be launched on March 4th 2020 and we warmly invite you to join us on that occasion for a brief launch event. The website and database will be launched and presented and we will welcome some guest speakers to discuss the findings. Have you got a good practice you would like to share? Our intention is to maintain the database and continue to add good practice approaches and examples, so do not hesitate to let us know more.
